decades of experience as a manufacturer of optical lenses and precision equipment, Nikon
developed the world’s first production-worthy step-and-repeat photolithography tool in
1980. Since then, over 60 models of Nikon Semiconductor Lithography systems (steppers and
scanners) have printed half of all the integrated circuits ever manufactured. Today, Nikon is
the leading global supplier of Semiconductor lithography systems. It is real-world, on-product performance
that is vital to chipmakers. The latest Nikon scanner NSR-S635E is the industry’s most advanced scanner for
aggressive multiple patterning processes. It ensures world-class device patterning and optimum fab
productivity to fully satisfy real-world 5 nm node requirements.
Nikon Precision Europe GmbH is the organisation supporting the latest Nikon Scanners for its European
customers. We provide Service to our customers during all the lifecycle of the Scanner. Whether it is during
Installation, Wafer Production Ramp-Up or in a Sustaining Production Environment, our team provide
